I appreciate that it is only decoration. If I want to put up a Christmas tree, what's your problem??
No problem at all. I honestly have noticed red calipers and thought they looked sharp. Not something I would buy but I'm just cheap that way.
Sorry if I gave you the wrong impression. I am new at this forum thing.

Actually, no problem at all. They do look nice but we were just having fun, but rib jabs don't cross over very well in forum speak ;-)

I own a Rav4 Prime XSE and would like to install MGP Brake Caliper Covers. Will they fit? My Prime is Japan built.

Thanks for any assistance.

I am very interested also; they will look great! If they do fit; my question would be; are they going to interfere with mechanic when I need brake pads/work done; in that do they need to be removed to do brake work, or do they simply stay in place (barring actual caliper replacement)?

Just poking fun. :oops:

In my teenage years I have seen cheaply made clipped on caliper covers come off and damaged wheels and brakes. Just make sure they are well made and do not cause more trouble down the road.

Just looked at the BBB and they don't have a glowing report on this item or the company. Wrong item sent, no return, poorly painted, no response on query's, no telephone contact with a real person. I would, and will be very careful with this company.

I have some experience with caliper covers. The MGP covers appear to mount well, are metal, plain with no specific detail, painted on fake bolts and really expensive for what you get in my opinion. Brembo covers look good with lots of detail but are plastic and mounted using adhesive cement. There is a company ( don't remember the name, Google search )that makes custom sheet metal covers that mount with magnets. No a big fan of mounting with adhesive or magnets. If you have really spaced wheel spokes they can be stolen easily. I purchased iTrims caliper covers. Nice detail, really attractive red paint, and bolt on in as secure manner similar to MGP. Cost between $115 - $160 for a set of 4 depending on the supplied on Ebay. They do not fit the Prime but I believe they could be made to fit with some self fabricated spring metal pieces. Mine have been on for about 6 months.

I have included a couple of photos.

I was back and forth with MGP and ordered them specifically noting that the vehicle was "Japan made" etc. as they indicated I should....bottom line is that they arrived and did not fit. Back and forth with them again...and they don't have any that will fit the vehicle.

The magnetic ones I believe are from Magnetic Caliper Covers | Custom Concept Illusionz. I’ve been looking at these for their detail. Lots of options. If anyone tries them I would love to know how they worked out.
There are a couple of utube videos with installation and review of the product. Might be the best option for the Prime because they custom make them. The best looking ones are their most pricey models and fairly expensive.
